A Carmel couple traveling in Chile before the quake has made contact with family members to let them know they are OK.

Joseph Stoffers and Isis Skarra-Pergler went backpacking in Chile in early February.

They were in a popular surf spot north of the epicenter when the quake hit and it took several days before they could find a working phone line.

Stoffers is a state parks lifeguard near Monterey.
